.s. consulate in benghazi. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed that day. the panel finding security in benghazi was grossly inadequate to cope with the attack, that washington ignored repeated requests to beef up personnel, and ultimately a lack of transparency, responsiveness and leadership senior levels both this washington and in libya. alise, what do you make of this report. a lot of these findings we've been talking about for a very long time. >> that's right, but also in the last few months, there's been so much politicization of this attack, especially with these talking points and the whole issue of susan rice, ambassador susan rice and what she said about whether there was a protest. this report didn't find that there was a protest, but it also kind of really is the first look at what went wrong, a kind of very sobering look i'd say of what went wrong. and they said that basically the state department and the embassy in libya kind of missed the warning signs that there was an imminent attack coming. there wasn't a specific threat, but a lot of attacks on ot
the president who won't call let's say major hasan in fort hood terror or benghazi was terror or can't state war on terror, he certainly shows a lot of toughness and lack of respect for the republicans. wish he showed that on foreign policy. >> look, i think what we've learned is that he is a chicago machine politician who happens to have radical values. he is seeking to run the united states the same way the chicago machine would run chicago. i think the challenge for house republicans is, to design a strategy from the base of strength they have, and to be able to say we are not going to go along with this president taking over the whole country in a centralized model where he will have no accountability. they can borrow endless money the geithner proposal, no accountability to anybody. >> sean: mr. speaker appreciate it. great new book. next, bob woodward takes us inside the fiscal cliff negotiating room. he wrote about the grand bargain that didn't happen. congressman louie gohmert is here. you will be surprised what he has to say. it is the story that is now swept the nation a police officer

that the political traction they could not get before the election in attacking the president for the benghazi attack, they would try to get instead after the election by attacking susan rice for the benghazi attack. they attacked her specifically for going on sunday morning talk shows after the attack and delivering the administration's talking points about what was believed to have happened there. it later emerged that those talking points were exactly what the intelligence agencies told the administration they should say about the attack. senator mccain described that as the worst cover-up he had ever seen in his life. he said it was worse than watergate. he said that that susan rice, she's not very bright. actually used that phrase about her, "not very bright." part of the reason susan rice became such a high-profile potential nominee was because of that criticism from republican senators. more than that, it ended up becoming a very high-profile potential nomination because of the president's response to that republican criticism. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplar

benghazi. does this end the debate over that. >> republicans frankly say. no they still have questions about what senator clinton and the president knew about security at the consulate and about the attack and when did they know it. but they made clear in a news conference today that a a susan rice confirmation hearing would have been bitter because of her insistence a week after the attack that it grew out of the protest of anti-islam movie. >> i just did not believe that our country is going to be well-served by people who i, quite frankly, didn't trust. and susan rice, let's just get to the heart of the matter, i don't question her character or prism. i just thought that he was very eager to tell a story that did not make a lot of sense. >> lawmakers say they still want to hear from secretary of state clinton before voting on the kerry confirmation but it's democrats on the committee who will schedule the confirmation date. harris? >> harris: wendell goler outside the white house tonight. thank you very much. we are getting new information tonight about a possible motive for the att

withdrew her name over the problem over benghazi. >>reporter: several republican senators said today they still have questions about what the president and secretary clinton knew of security at consulate and the attack and when did they know it. they called today for a defense department study to decide whether there should be marines posted at more installations and they said secretary clinton who did not testify this week on capitol hill should testify before john kerry is confirmed. >> i want someone to ask secretary clinton, why didn't you go on tv september 16 when ambassador rice says that secretary clinton wasn't available because she was sick and giving grief counseling, and i want to see if that withstands scrutiny. >>reporter: despite the criticism in the wake of benghazi attack no republicans indicated they will vote against confirming john kerry. >>gregg: thank you, when we talk more about this, chris wall has, what does john kerry bring to the post? >>chris: tremendous experience as wendell said, 27 years in the senate, and he has longed if the job for a long-term. there
committee for a very long time. he knows most of the world leaders. >> the susan rice/benghazi witch-hunt, what is your reaction to that? >> well, keep in mind john kerry is barack obama's first choice. susan rice wasn't a choice. she got tied up into the politics of benghazi. but this is who the president likes, believes in. kerry gave obama that great nominating speech slot in 2004. but kerry has been able to be bipartisan in the true sense. he has been able to cut deals and work with senators -- senator murkowski is a friend of his from alaska, for example. this is going to be one of the best appointments, selections that the president could have made. and most people on capitol hill feel the same. >> quickly, will he go through confirmation easily? >> he will go through. i think vicki kennedy will come in and be the senator for that interim period. it's 145 to 160 days until governor deval patrick is going to set that up. i think he is probably going to run for senate. >> interesting. great to have you with us, professor. thank you so much. >>> coming up, the owner of some big-na

the republican firestorm on the attack in benghazi, susan rice has taken herself out of the running, won't try to succeed secretary of state hillary clinton for that role. president obama talked about ambassador rice's decision last night. >> i hadn't made a decision about who would be my next secretary of state. no doubt, susan is qualified. other people are qualified as well. her interest is in serving me, but more importantly, in serving the country. could not be prouder of her. she is one of the top members of my national security team. >> she'll meet with the president today, our foreign affairs reporter, elise labott in washington, d.c. break this down what's happening behind the scenes. she said in her resignation note that she's decided to do this for the good of the american people, so there is not this contentious, partisan debate. what's really happening here? >> well, i've talked to some of our aides. she was ready for a fight. she doesn't give up on a fight. tweeted this morning with an op-ed in "the washington post," but over the last couple of days and weeks, her aides and she s
